Developing Job Descriptions for Personnel Evaluations.
Blanden, Ernest
The Danville Community Consolidated School District of Danville, Illinois, uses the remediation process to remove unsatisfactory but tenured faculty. The teacher is told what must be remedied and faces several evaluations. The basic obstacles to such a firing process are board policies, negotiated contracts, the employees' defensive actions, and poor supervisory evaluations. One key element in discriminating evaluation systems is the use of job descriptions. Job descriptions should be developed for every personnel classification, possibly by a representative sampling of the personnel acting as a committee. An adequate personnel evaluation system should be described in writing, including a clear statement of the system's purpose, a thorough understanding of who evaluates whom, when, and how, a recommendation for inservice training, information on implementation techniques and timing, and procedures for appeal. In the final analysis, however, the system must be flexible enough for easy use in varying circumstances while maintaining the clarity required for processes that must hold up in court. (Author/PGD)
